Education Committee

Building the power of the labor movement through educating and training our members is the education committee's responsibility. Members of this committee work with local union leaders to determine the membership's needs and provide classes, materials, and information based on these needs. In many subject areas, the National Education Department has programs that can be delivered to your members.

Some of these programs include:

  • New member orientation 
  • Grievance handling 
  • Leading with vision 
  • The structure of standing committees

If you are committed to providing education that informs, develops skills, and motivates our leadership and members, this is the committee for you.

If you are interested in some independent study training, Region 4 has an online institute that offers many courses to deepen your education about our union. These courses can be taken any time and at your own pace. Subjects range from UAW history, standing committee basics, basic grievance knowledge, and many others. To take advantage of these opportunities, you will need to create an account and register with the Region. The link is:
